About Me

I hail from a small city in central India (also called "Heart of India"). In 2016, I came to the United States for my Masters at NYU and ended up doing my PhD at UCSD, thanks to my MS thesis advisor Prof. Shivendra Panwar, and my PhD guide Prof. Dinesh Bharadia. I miss the subway train and Indian food of New York, but, I like the weather and beaches of San Diego. During my free times, I enjoy sketching, painting, and writing personal blogs.

Research Projects

project name

mmWave Blockage Analysis

We analyze the impact of blockage by static buildings, mobile blockers as well as self-blockage by the user's body. Our results indicate that the minimum density of BS required to satisfy the Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC) applications is mainly driven by reliability and latency constraints, rather than coverage or capacity requirements.

Collaborators: Rajeev Kumar, NYU

Code Paper Masters Thesis

project name

Active Queue Management

We implemented 7 queue management schemes including ARED, CoDel, PIE, and SFQ on GENI testbed and analyzed their performances in residential settings.


Fun Projects

Chameo (A colour Sensing and production device) (2014)

Published : "Study of use of Water based Solvent in Ink Homogenization." International Journal of Engineering Research & Technology. Vol. 3 - Issue 7, July 2014.
Studied the colour homogenization and its production with the use of water based solvent, through experiments. Fabricated a device which can sense and produce same colour using different proportion of CMYK ink and solvent.

Self Balancing Platform (2013)

Made a platform which is balanced horizontally with the help of three motors, irrespective of the movement of the base at the bottom. Used an accelerometer and gyroscope based IMU to get the feedback of the tilt of platform and processed the signal in an Arduino Mega. Applied PID control and kalman filter algorithm to stabilise the platform obtained by precise movement of servos in real time.

Work Experience

Summer Research Intern
Nokia Bell Labs, Murray Hills, NJ (May - Aug 2017)

Mentor: Ozge Kaya
Developed beam training algorithm for initial access in mmWave Network. It allows the users to connect to the mmWave access point faster than the traditional exhaustive search scheme using directional beams. The algorithm is robust to channel variations, blockages, and user's mobility.

MITACS Research Intern
University of Victoria, Canada (May - Jul 2015)

Mentor: Dr. Jianping Pan, Dept. of Computer Science
Studied state-of-the-art Rendezvous algorithms for Cognitive Radio Networks and obtained channel availability probability for cognitive users based on primary users location in a cellular model, which is used to evaluate the rendezvous performance in the practical conditions.
